I thought it would be silly to pass up the opportunity to float while in Utila so my finace, Rob, and I, booked a time (which is really easy, by the way. You just tell Amanda and she let's you know!) and went in. We didn't realize that the light in the corner was the light to be turned off so we floated with it on, a bit confused. We felt silly and we were offered another try.
The second time I couldn't tell time at all. Had there been no music to indicate the end of the hour I wouldn't be able to tell minutes from days. I couldn't tell when I was awake or when I was asleep. I could imagine things vividly, sounds clearly, though there was no light no sound but the occasional flutter from Rob's side. At one point it felt like I was halfway to standing upright like a mummy in a tomb. It is the perfect setting for meditation even with a partner in the tub with you. The first time in the tank I fought the movements coming from the other person but the second time I accepted them and embraced the sensation of any sensation at all in sensory deprivation. I felt like I was floating from corner to corner and couldn't tell where I was only to find I hadn't moved at all in the end or I was in a completely different place I had thought. I was able to fell everything and nothing all at once. Really, it was so cool. We even split a massage afterward and it was amazing though you really do need a full hour or more to fall into a trance.
John told us about all sorts of healing minerals and methods that I have started taking into practice and we had breakfast with Amanda and Bina in La Ceiba before they took us to their dentist to make sure we had the best dental care in Honduras. Thank you Amanda, John and Bina, the most extroverted intelligent young lady I have ever met.
